Great escape: why GPs are drawing pensions at a younger age


I am drawing my pension this August at 58. There is minimal financial hit. You get a 10% reduction in the amount you get but you get it for two extra years... to put it bluntly you are financially ahead of the game until you are 80. I will do a few OOH sessions now and again ( which in my area are indemnified so no need for MDU). Next Feb plan a belated gap year in Australia. Will be a person of independent means who can do what they like, assuming I dont die-- we are all on borrowed time.
